Updated: 4 days ago


Our world, churches, families, schools, businesses, and so on are desperate for leaders. In the past, some have viewed leadership & management degrees as ineffective; in some cases, a few have questioned the validity of such degrees. Not anymore... In a post-quarantine world, online learning has expanded in considerable ways to provide avenues for people to earn such degrees.

As you browse through the list, you'll find degrees offered by Christian and non-Christian schools like Biola University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Pepperdine University, Southeastern University, University of Oklahoma, University of Southern California, and many more. Regularly check this blog post as this list will be updated often.
